the two main objectives of the NAMA are (1) Enable private sector participation in the manufacturing and distribution of the clean energy technologies and (2) Create an enabling market environment that encourages the distribution of clean energy technologies to end-users, supported by an appropriate financing model.
Activities: (2017 - 2028)
The proposed NAMA covers two interventions.
- Intervention 1 involves the establishment of 28 Energy Productivity Zones (EPZs) in Ghana with their own solar PV power plants.
- Intervention 2 will support the distribution of clean energy technologies enabled through consumer finance.
The distribution of the following clean energy technologies is proposed over the lifespan of the NAMA:
- Solar PV lanterns (1 million units)
- Solar Solutions (50,000 units)
- Improved cook stoves (1 million units for households and 250 units for commercial activities)
- LPG cook stoves (250,000 units, including gas cylinders).
The Ministry of Finance will be the focal point for implementation of the NAMA in Ghana. The Ministry of Environment, Science, Technology and Innovation (MESTI) will act as National Coordinating Authority (NCA) and perform all strategic functions relating to this NAMA. The Energy Commission will play the role of the National Implementing Entity (NIE) and perform all planning and management activities relating to the NAMA. The monitoring and reporting cell will have representatives from the Energy Commission, the Environmental Protection Agency and Ghana Statistical Services.
